This user has the following games installed:

Sims 2, University, Nightlife, Open for Business, Pets, Seasons, Bon Voyage, Free Time, Apartment Life
Default SimPE not opening anymore
I know it's a bit late to post this now because Sims 2 is old but please still help me. I can't open it but I swear I have used it before and made a lot of paintings through it but for some reason, I can't open it anymore. I played this game again to relive my childhood and it really means a lot to me if you helped me with this. Thank you guys.

Do you have the latest version of SimPE and the needed plugins?
Here is a very detailed instruction with links to everything you need for it.

Sorry for the late reply. Thank you for replying. I'll try this and hopefully, SimPE works again.

I followed almost everything but can't proceed because I still can't open the application itself. Which is weird because I used to use it all the time.

Default SimPe doesn't open at all!
Please help me I just want to turn my screenshots into paintings. I don't know what happened but I can't open it anymore. I eve tried uninstalling and reinstalling it but it still didn't work. I even tried to reinstall the game but still doesn't work. I even tried updating the framework and installing the plug-ins(which is odd because I never needed them before but still worked) but I still can't open it. I know a lot of you here are experts. Please help me.

Moved to Help since you're more likely to get some 'help' here. Also merging this thread with your previous one - please don't post multiple threads on the same topic.

What version of SimPE are you using? You really don't need to reinstall the game for this - it has absolutely no connection to SimPE running.

Do you get an error message? And what does it say?

I understand and I am very sorry.

I was using the .73 version then switched to .72 because it wasn't working. I thought switching to .72 was a good idea but it still didn't open.

Has it just all of a sudden stopped working? Or have you changed anything with it? I'm sure you have turned off you computer, but sometimes when you switch on the computer and try to open an application it just stays with the loading cursor and when this happened I'd just restart. And when replying to multiple posts, you can put in the poster's name like this @Chet R. Chase and reply to each post instead of multiple posting.

Oh sorry, my mistake. I just forgot to say something that's why I made a lot of replies. I haven't done anything with it except for of course installing CEP. I tried uninstalling CEP then running it but still no luck.

Version 73 is the later one and works well - though it is the non-installable version. What you can do is download or get your back up of the fresh zip and re-extract. Sometimes, SimPE gets moody about starting and what I usually find effective is to boot out the old version and just get a new copy of the files. If it doesn't work then, it's something on your system preventing it - you could try running in administrator mode.

I'm sorry if I am such a nuisance. I know it's not your obligation to help me but you're still helping so thank you. I have done that before and also running administrator mode. I tried disabling my antivirus but still no luck. I have seen an older thread that is similar to my problem and someone replied to them with a link to the forum but the forum is not accessible anymore. I think that may be the solution though unfortunately, it's not available. I have been looking for a fix on google too but I can't find any.

@Chet R. Chase please do not double, triple or quadruple post, it's against site rules. if you have more to add and your post does not need bumping use the edit button.

If you have the possibility try to open it on a different computer. Just to see whether the problem is your computer or SimPE itself.

You say it worked before. Was that a long time ago?

@joandsarah77 I understand now. I am new to posting so please pardon my ignorance and forgive me.

@lientebollemeis No, it wasn't really a long time ago. It suddenly stopped working the moment I made a lot of custom paintings using CEP.
